Naya Rivera reveals even more secrets from her upcoming memoir Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up.
The 29-year-old Glee actress opens up about battling anorexia, having an abortion and a big purchase she made when she was 18-years-old. While she was in high-school, Naya, decided to use her savings from TV roles on Family Matters and The Royal Family to buy breast implants.
“I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out. ‘I’m getting plastic surgery!’ I’d tell them gleefully,” Naya says in the book, excerpted on PEOPLE. “My art teacher was stoked – when I told her she said that she too had fake tits and that she was very excited for me.”
“My new boobs were a confidence thing, not a sexual thing,” added Naya. “I’d never even taken my top off for a guy. I hadn’t had many opportunities to do so, but even if I had, my bra was always stuffed with napkins.”
“As soon as I went back to school, [the boys] all practically fell over themselves rushing to see who could hold the door open for me,” she continued. “People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than ten years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have even been the best $8K I’ve ever spent.”
Naya’s memoir hits bookshelves September 13, 2016.
